Provo is Utah County’s Central Business District. Brandon Fugal on Jessop’s Journeys

(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you drive up and down interstate 15, I assure you’ve viewed Brandon Fugal’s identify on indicators. As the Chairman of Colliers Worldwide, Brandon is what I like to connect with the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to financial trends.

1 of the largest traits Brandon likes to speak about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Small business District.” We frequented about a new building soaring in downtown Provo named “Freedom Commons,” and is the initially “Class A” office area building in Provo in about a ten years (check out the online video to get the rest of the details).

My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to locate “people, locations and things you could not know about.” Brandon shared the adhering to specifics about economic advancement in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest metropolis (established in 1850), Provo has generally been and continues to be the heart of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Most significant Metropolis in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Centre for education and learning, health-related, federal government, transportation, hospitality
  • Remarkable, livable, historic downtown (the only one particular in Utah County)

There are much more than 20,000 integrated communities in The united states. Though many are prospering, others are battling. Provo Town is placing the metropolis typical, not just locally, but nationally, as demonstrated by its getting named the nation’s 2001’s Greatest-Operate City.

So what is the secret sauce that Provo City has disprotected that has gained them the moniker “Central Company District of Utah County?”

Metropolis leaders contact it “The Provo Benefit.” What really don’t you know about Provo? You can indication up for a regular monthly email at to find out.


All people has a tale. I strongly feel that “stories have power”. Prospects are that if you are likely as a result of anything, that somebody else in all probability has as very well. The shared experiences we human beings have can help each other. That my buddy will make the position that tales “help us recognize each individual other.”

You really don’t have to concur with absolutely everyone, but in my opinion, if people would choose far more time finding to understanding additional about many others and exactly where they are coming from, we just may well obtain out that we have much more similarities than distinctions.
